, congresswoman michele bachmann took the house floor and made some unfounded claims, this time about obama care which house republicans are trying to get appealed. she says it will literally kill people, literally. kill them. dead. before going further, we should point out that we're not partisan on this. when democratic congressman allen grayson said the gop's health care plan was for people to die quickly, we called him out on it. we're not trying to pick parties or choose sides. we're interested in facts and politicians who play fast and loose with the facts which of course brings us back to michele bachmann. i say again because you may remember that when last we caught up with the minnesota congresswoman just two days ago, we were literally trying to catch up with her as she raced away from our dana bash. we sent dana to talk with her because the congresswoman was giving a speech on the benghazi killings, she veered into claims, false ones, that the obama white house budget was loaded with lavish perks, including a staff just to walk the first dog. here's dana's exchange with ms. bachmann.

. this was a somewhat successful trip according to some white house officials for president obama. they feel that president obama has encouraged the israeli public to believe that president obama is actually on their side and that there is an unbreakable alliance as the israelis put it between america and israel. that being said, the skeptics still remain on both sides as israelis as well as palestinians. many feel that president obama's visit was symbolic. it may not negotiate any peace when it comes to the region. although there is still some hope at least that president obama and the obama administration will get involved and actually help in negotiating a two-state solution. >> we brought you the president's unscripted remarks at the top of the show. how is that being received in the israeli press about the children of the palestinians? >> reporter: many israelis, it depends on who you talk to, really. the israelis, they, too, are very divided when it comes to the palestinian issue. many israelis agreed with president obama and they do feel that there should be a two-state solution. that
